Last time, I blogged about what I was up to with wireless access geolocation. Now it's in a state where it's fit for consumption by the brave, so I've put it in the playground.
So why the blog title? Well, today I'm visiting some friends in Edinburgh, so I thought I'd test it out. When I got here, I updated the list of access points to include those visible from their house, fired up the LCD Weather Station plasma applet, and sure enough...:
Now, my location is tracked whether I'm at home, in the office, or visiting here - great! Anyone interested in this, I'd encourage you give the download a try. The README file that comes with it explains what to do - add your access point data to the CSV file it uses, and away you go.
Next step: a GUI to edit the list of known access points, and improving the location estimate using signal strength data.
